I would like to link cells from one project to another, but the option is grayed out (not available to select) when i right click on the cell. Any suggestions? thanks!
What Permission do you have on that sheet?
Is the finish date a part of the automatically added project managment columns?
If you have dependencies enabled in the sheet (typical for a project plan), then the Finish date is calculated automatically based on the duration and other dependencies. So, since this is a calculated column, the sheet does not allow you to select a specific finish date as a cell link from another sheet.
If you need this ability you'll have to disable Dependencies (found under Project Settings). The downside is that you lose the automatic cascade of dates.
